i’m currently exploring the thin client technology for implementing it at my home ... in case any of you dont know the meaning of thin-client … CLICK HERE for definition.
i’m using these applications to create the system :-
- X11’s XDM Control Protocol
- Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) daemon
- Trivial FTP server
- PXES – A micro linux distribution specially made for thin client
The server is implemented on Fedora Core 5 – my favourite linux distribution by RedHat Inc.
so far, i have succeeded in testing it at UTP’s library ( well .. illegally .. ) ... i installed FC5 on a computer which is .. well … they label it as broken computer …. and set-up all that necessary there, run the daemons .. and .. walla .. XDMCP works!! ... however .. there are still some minor problems that i still need to find a way around—eg: automatic redirection of sound, multiple servers, etc …
